Sadly, ArtBab is not going ahead. No more edition is planned.
ArtBAB – Art Bahrain Across Borders – is the art fair for the Kingdom of Bahrain in the Middle East. Launched in 2016, it takes place annually early March, only two weeks before the nearby Art Dubai. The fair’s mission is pretty essential. Thus, it aims to support, inspire and expand the arts in the country. This young but exciting fair is gaining confidence. So that, it now attracts local and international leading galleries. Around 40 dealers showcase every year a unique collection of paintings, crafted work and photography. As a result, it gathers an ever growing number of seasoned buyers and collectors from the reagion but from the rest of the world as well. Moreover, an annual theme guides the pieces exhibited. Finally ArtBAB really want to promote fresh creation, that is why many young artists are encouraged to apply to display their work on an international stage.
